The term Spa has always been associated with water treatment, known as the balneotherapy. From historical times people have been aware of the healing powers of the mineral water. Spas are gaining rapid popularity worldwide and day spas also provide personal care treatments.

The term is spa is derived from the name of the town Spa, Belgium. The Latin word "spargere" meant to sprinkle, moisten or to scatter. Medieval ages saw the curing of the iron deficiency by drinking water from chalybeate or iron bearing spring water. The 16th England saw the emergence of medicinal baths especially in towns like Bath. The first resort was built by William Slingsby in 1571 in Belgium around the chalybeate spring of Yorkshire. The enclosed well came to be known as the Harrogate and went on to become the first resort for drinking medicinal water.

Since pre-historic times people have travelled far and wide for cure for diseases. Archaeological excavations found offerings in the hot springs of France and Czech Republic dating back to the Bronze Age. Regional purification through water still continues today in all the religions, Hindu, Muslim, Christianity, Catholicism and Buddhism etc.
